CNMN Network: Thor is a terrific comic book movie and achieves everything that you would hope an origin story would have. It provides the back story for the audience who may not been too familiar with the canon. It has awesome action scenes, worthy of the very comic book pages from which they could be lifted, and the sound is great. Turn it up, way up. There are moments of humour throughout the film which allows the characters to be more than a one dimensional plot point.
